    Neat machines! I sometimes wish the cool stuff would be listed a bit further south.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Right, I never see any good deals close to me. It seems like all the good stuff is too far for me to drive. I am looking for a FW121. If I find one lose and at the right price I will BUY!!!!, Joy
    Life is SEW great!!!!!!

    Well, shoot! I really like the first one...pretty decals and great cabinet! I agree...nothing good is ever coming up in my area either. If it does, the seller thinks it's gold!

    You must mean a FW 221 or maybe the FW 222 which is the Free arm FW? I would like the FW 222 as I got a very nice one from EBAY last year. shp and all $210.00.

    Awww...that would probably take you pretty close to my doorstep! Such temptation on these boards.

    It looks pretty, and I like the parlor cabinet, but is there some trait that makes it more appealing to people? I know people like the Two Spools because of the bobbin spool and the Davis VF because of the feed. Does the Damascus have something unique about it?

    Bennett, I think it's because of the parlor cab... there's really nothing unique about Damascus machines, they can be really pretty girls tho... I think they were sold by Montgomery Wards, if my memory serves (which it often doesn't! )
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Oh my gosh, a two spool... doesn't that mean no stopping to wind bobbins? Wish I was closer!

    Oh WOW, a Damascus Grand and a National Two Spool. Both are on my wish list. Sure wish I lived close. They would have been coming home to my house.

    I'm with you Bennett! I also live in North Texas - and what I generally see isn't very good, and seems mostly overpriced (at least as compared to the deals/steals others find!!).
